(c) Le Dent Pinnacle Rock Climbing
Dave Daly on 'Forest Lawn' (A2+), Suicide Rock
This area is far up and left from where the trail first hits the rock. The approach is long, but it's a warm place to climb in cold weather. It doesn't take many sunny days for the snow to melt off this cliff.
Either hike and scramble up to the South Face, and continue left around the base of Deception Pillar, or hike up to the top of the rock and scramble/rappel down a short chimney to the start of the climbs.
